Estate sale finds

About two weekends ago I drove out to Raleigh for an estate sale.
It was HUGE. There was soooo much stuff.
Part two of that sale will be in August when they sort through the basement and attic.
(LOTS of vintage Christmas I hear...woohoo!)
I was lucky to be in the first group to go in the house.
Heres what I snatched up.
A little more than 2 yards of fabric.
Green vase, unsure the maker just says USA on bottom.

Vintage cookbooks (one of my weaknesses) LOL

<3 Vintage rooster tablecloth. <3

Rocking chair. I already had one but I wanted another for the front porch.
The coke crate was a yard sale find from last year.

Two pillows made out of what I think it vintage fabric.
See the bird.. (pheasant?) Not sure but cute!
I fell in love with the colors.

Heres a close up of the bunny.

I almost passed these dishes up when I was at Goodwill.
I didn't see them, I am sooo glad I walked around twice.

I got SIX dinner plates 99 cents a piece.
Cup and saucer in same pattern.

It says Haviland Limoges.
Made in France.
I think they are the Forget me not pattern.

What have you found lately?
Happy Hunting!!!

Wow! You hit the jackpot!!! Let's see, I love the fabric, the blue dishes, the bunny, the coke crate, and best of all THE COOKBOOKS! I was just telling my husband (who has no interest at all :) ) that I wanted some vintage cookbooks to put on an old rusty scale I bought recently. You inspired me to keep looking. I'm gonna follow your blog; don't want to miss what you find next :)

Hi Michelle! it was so nice to hear from you again! I love all of your finds! The vintage bird pillows are really cool! And the bunny is adorable! And what a score on those plates!!
I hope you're able to find the perfect vanity for your DD. I found mine at the Goodwill for $49. I've also seen some really nice ones on craigslist. I hope you'll post a picture if you find the right one *winks* Vanna
